Skopje, 17 February 2017 (MIA) - Everything that is in line with the Constitution and the practical needs of the Albanian community, all the while taking into consideration the needs of all other minority communities, is acceptable, Zoran Zaev said commenting on the documents sent to SDSM by DUI as the opposition party continues to discuss forming a government with Albanian parties.
Asked whether SDSM from DUI had received a new draft-law on the use of languages or remarks about the law, the SDSM leader said the party's working groups were reviewing the materials and were expected to come up with a response as soon as possible.
"We will accept everything that is in line with the Constitution and everything that covers the practical need of the citizens of the Albanian community, all the while taking into consideration the needs of other minority communities. Everything should have its foundations in the Constitution while being also sustainable. I believe we will manage to find a solution," Zaev told reporters adding he hadn't had the chance to read the documents because they had been sent late on Thursday.
The opposition leader said he believed a solution would be found with 'such frameworks set up so broadly and strengthened with the concept of One Society for All.'
"The first thing that is analyzed in this kind of negotiations is the Constitution - whether everything is in accordance with the Constitution. And the second thing is to determine whether the need of the citizens is practical or whether it is only a whim, something to stir up things with," SDSM president Zaev said urging a solution to be found so the country could move forward.
According to Zaev, it is possible a swift solution to be found as soon as possible to secure the signatures required to form a government. "Since local elections are scheduled to be held in the spring is all the more reason for the political officials that are negotiating to reach a decision as soon as possible." ba/16:09
